Hatikvah played in Tokyo as Israeli judoka wins gold

Sagi Muki wins top prize in the Judo World Championship in Tokyo Wednesday, making history for the Jewish state.

By Israel Hayom Staff, August 28th, 2019:

Marking another historic moment for Israeli sports, Israeli judoka Sagi Muki won gold at the Judo World Championship in Tokyo on Wednesday in the men’s -81 kg (178 lbs) category.

Muki is the first Israeli male judoka to receive this honor.

Prior to Wednesday’s matches, all eyes were on Iranian judoka Saeid Mollaei, the defending champion, because there was the very real possibility that he would have to compete against Muki.

But Mollaei was knocked out of the race in the quarter-final stage. Muki won the final against Belgium’s Matthias Casse.
